The County Affair is an Americana band with influences from the USA and Ireland.
Founders Kevin Brennan and Tony Regan are lifelong friends and musical collaborators.
Back in the late-70s the guys were teenagers gigging in Irish showbands; then in their early twenties toured the States coast to coast as a folkier new-country duo. Turning down offers to go professional, they both chose corporate careers which, along with raising families, meant that music took a back seat for more than thirty years.
Around 2017, Kevin took seriously to song writing and reunited with Tony to form The County Affair and create their own music.
A chance encounter led to an approach from producer Tom Nichols, inviting them to record their first album with him at Abbey Road Studios.
2021 sees the release of several singles, then the album – ‘Off the Grid’ – and all being well some live shows before the year is out.
